Global Village

While searching for pictures, I was able to find a few pictures of the dormitories at SCH. This what is looks like:

I signed up for Facebook after a friend had showed me how it works. This site was able to connect me to other people going to Soonchunhyang University for the Spring 07 semester. It is a pretty neat site because it allows you to keep in touch with old friends and friends from far away through a bunch of networks.

새해 복 많이 받으세요

Sehe Bokmanee Bateuseyo - Happy New Years!

Good-bye 2006 and hello 2007! Well, 2006 has been a big year for me. I was browsing one of my favourite forums,, and I read a post with the topic "How Was 2006 For You?". It was basically a few questions and members could reply to them. Here are the questions and my answers:

1. What was the most memorable event of 2006 for you personally?
Going down on my road-trip to San Diego then to Vegas

2. What have you done this year that you feel was a real accomplishment?
Managed to raise my GPA and get accepted into SFU.

3. What do you regret most about this year?
Not trying hard for Spring 06 semester. Although regret is a funny thing. It is somewhat bad to think something you did in the past is a negative thing. Maybe because I didn't try hard for the Spring 06 semester, that made me try harder for the fall and helped me get into SFU. Or maybe by me trying harder for the fall it helped me find the opportunity to go to South Korea. So yes, I am quite upset that I didn't do too well in the spring, but maybe if I did do good I wouldn't be going to Korea. So I guess things happen for a reason, good or bad.

4. Did you stick to your new years resolutions? If so, what were they?
I don't think I made any. If so, it was to probably quit smoking (which I have somewhat) and try harder in school. I did bad in spring but good in fall, so I guess I didn't fully fulfill but didn't ignore my resolutions.

5. What was your favourite song of 2006?
James Blunt - You're Beautiful, Guang Liang - Tong Hua

6. Which band/ artist did you discover/ fall in love with this year?
Jay Chou/The Fray

7. Who are you most proud of this year and why? (can be a family member/ friend or a famous person!)
[To be determined]

8. Did you do anything new or do something for the first time this year?
I went on a road-trip down the coast to San Diego, then went to Vegas and back.

9. Have you learnt anything new about yourself in 2006?
If I try hard, I can accomplish anything.

10. What has your relationship status been like throughthe year? Did you find that "special someone?"
Nope, been trying but I am too shy. I have met some nice new friends whom are girls, but not that special someone, yet. :(

11. What do you want to do in 2007? What, if any, new years resolutions will you be making?
Quit smoking, work out more, eat healthier, do much better in school, quit gambling, get a girlfriend, make more money, make more friends, enjoy life, be more understanding, don't be judgmental, be less self conscious, and be a good person in general.

Finally.... sum up you year in a few sentences!
This year has been pretty big for me. I have realized that I am not a little kid anymore and I am a young adult. I now know that I want my degree and I want to succeed in life. I have changed from being a lazy slob to the total opposite. Started to go to the gym, make more friends, try hard in school. So I guess this year has played a pivotal point in my life and it has changed my views.

I think I have grown up a lot from Jan 1 2006 to Dec 31 2006. I just hope I can continue my ambition for 2007. So bring it on!!
